Hi there,

I don't know whether I'm reporting a real typo (it might be a stylistic question).

I haven't read the full TEI Guidelines and the TEI Lite documentation, but there seems to be a parenthetical use of dashes with additional spaces. The question is that for this parenthetical use both em and en dashes are deployed.

Shouldn't it be only one dash for this use (whichever it might be)?

Thanks for your help,

Pablo

    I don't want to close this ticket until the decision in my comment of 2012-04-15 is recorded in the Style Guide Becky is creating, so I'm going to set it to Pending. I'll assign it to Becky as soon as she's been added to the SF system.

    Assigning this to Rebecca (partly to check I that assigning tickets to her will work).

    Some spaces around em dashes removed in rev 10490. I believe we are now compliant with regard to em dashes, ahead of the June 18 release. I'm leaving the ticket open because of the outstanding style guide task, which Becky has.

    style guide has been compiled, including Martin's comments about em- and en-dash practice, and sent to webmasters. It will shortly be available on the TEI website as tcw24. Closing this ticket.
